Our mission is to house, support and advocate for people experiencing homelessness.
Simpson Housing Services is committed to the Housing First philosophy: providing homeless people with housing quickly, then providing services as needed. We offer overnight shelter for single adults, as well as affordable housing and support for homeless families and single adults in Hennepin County (MN).
In our 29 years of experience serving homeless individuals, we have learned that consistent advocacy and support is critical to the success of the individuals and families we serve. We are there every step of the way as they locate housing, sign the lease, move in and begin working on finding other forms of support in the community. Our housing programs and partnerships are currently serving 180 families with 480 children and 220 single adults.
Greg Horan was one of the Minnesotans memorialized at our homeless memorial service.

I'm waiting for a new day, a warm smile, and a new dream. But I'm afraid only darkness awaits me.”
In order to provide housing, support, and advocacy to end homelessness, we need your financial support.
